The University of Chicago is one of the top-rated private universities in the country. With an acceptance rate around 20%, the university sends out far more rejection letters than acceptances. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. As you can see, students who are admitted to Chicago tend to have an A- or higher GPA, SAT scores of 2000 or higher, and an ACT composite score of 28 or higher. The higher the numbers, the better your chance of admission.

Note that there's a lot of red hidden behind the green and blue -- many students with grades and test scores that were on target for Chicago still got rejected. Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. This is because the University of Chicago has holistic admissions -- the admissions officers are evaluating students based on more than numerical data. A rigorous high school curriculum, winning essay, and interesting extracurricular activities all contribute to a successful application.
